THE TEAM NEWS

ADELAIDE CROWS

  • Adelaide Crows cost themselves a spot in the AFL finals in 2019 as they lost their final three matches of the season and ended up finishing eight points short of eighth-placed Essendon.
  • The Crows were poor on home soil last time out having managed to win just five of their 11 matches and that is one area where they will need to improve if they are to challenge for a spot in the finals this time around.
  • Former Adelaide Power man Billy Frampton will make his club debut after making the switch during the off-season, while rookie Fischer McAsey will make his AFL debut.

SYDNEY SWANS

  • Sydney Swans suffered a six-match losing streak at a crucial part of the season as they ended the season in 15th place on the ladder in what ultimately turned out to be a very disappointing season for them.
  • The Swans will need to find greater consistency this season if they are to return to the finals and that will begin on the road with the Sydney outfit managing just three wins away from home last year.
  • Sydney have only named one ruckman for their first game of the year with Sam Naismith winning the race to be handed that role while Lewy Taylor and Sam Gray will make their debut for the Swans after arriving from Brisbane and Port Adelaide respectively.

THE PREDICTION

Sydney Swans disappointingly missed out on the finals in 2019 and will be eager to make a swift return this year. The usually consistent Swans were poor at the back end of the campaign and it prevented them from mounting a challenge. They head to Adelaide Crows as they attempt to get this new season off to a good start and the Swans should be able to do just that.
